I realise this study is pretty old so a lot of people would have heard of it, but I just thought it was interesting enough to post up here. I've only just found out about it on…Continue

"When meditating there is a release of endorphins in the brain that would explain the feelings that people have. It can also be produced with music. I could see where there could be a possibility that Persinger's helmet would trigger that same…"

The God Who Wasn't There

"I'm in the middle of watching this and after the part starting at 22:31 with Robert M. Price, I realized that "Satan" has actually been one of Christianity's biggest allies. Something doesn't fit the Bible? Oh, it's…"

"He keeps saying that all these dragon stories proved that they existed.. Apparently some people can't tell the difference between fact and fiction. Then again he does believe in the Bible!"

"As someone posted above. There are verses in 1 Corinthians that specifically tell women to shut up & ask their husbands quietly at home. She should also not be preaching to you with her head covered apparently. If all else fails this is a…"

Martha Everett replied to Reg The Fronkey Farmer's discussion 'To blazes with Pascal'
"I understand that Christians have a personal connection to Jesus, but they have to concede that it would be the height of arrogance to assume that a being of such power is not capable of deceiving them. God is hypothetically capable of deceiving any…"

Martha Everett replied to Reg The Fronkey Farmer's discussion 'To blazes with Pascal'
"Interesting discussion. I normally simply answer Pascal's Wager with either 1. If there is no God then you've just wasted your entire life. or 2. God would know if I was just pretending to believe in him anyway so there's literally…"

Martha Everett replied to Angie Baugh Stewart's discussion 'Can an atheist and a christian be together happily?'
"I'm absolutely sure it can work as much as inter-faith relationships. It must depend a bit on how strongly held the beliefs are on each side & the personalities involved. Me personally, I could never date a religious person, I'm too…"

Martha Everett replied to Pancake Croissant's discussion 'Let's talk about the nose in our face.'
"I can only repeat what others have said. Natural selection is a guided process so no we are not saying that. We are also not saying that is was a concious process. Evolution neither confirms nor denies god, he doesn't even come in to it…"

Martha Everett replied to Martha Everett's discussion 'Persinger's God Helmet'
"It does seem plausible, it would have to be a very well designed study to prove it either way. When you're dealing with studies in perception it must be monstrously hard to get clear data. I would love to see more research on this."

My Route To Atheism Part II

Posted on December 1, 2010 at 12:43pm 0 Comments

When I was about 15 My Mum & I joined the Quakers, I think she needed the support of a structure, but the great thing about Quakers is they don't dictate what your beliefs must be. Mostly they are in fact Christian, but they focus on a moral code centred around being the best person you can be & making the world a better place. They reject the introspective nature of most religions & encourage members to live their faith by going out in to the world. There exists what is known as… Continue

My Route To Atheism Part I

Recently I've watched a couple of really interesting conversion stories (here & here)

One is from a Pentecostal the & other just a very committed Christian! I thought it would be interesting to post my own deconversion story as I come from a very different background from these two & in some ways hippy… Continue

What Is More Important, Truth Or Meaning?

Posted on September 24, 2010 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

I'm sure you all heard the news that Stephen Hawking recently stated that new theories of the start of the universe leave no space in which to postulate a God. Now I haven't read his latest work & I'm not about to go in to scientific theory, what I'm interested in is the reaction of Christians & other religious people to this statement. Non surprisingly I heard an awful lot of very defensive statements on the radio, mostly rehashing old & long disproved arguments about… Continue

Come On Atheists!

Posted on August 20, 2010 at 12:30pm 3 Comments

Recently I keep Stumbling Upon this graphic about how Christians fucked everything up for us. I mean, we could be flying to work by now if it wasn't for those delusional fools! As an Atheist I like to think that I am a rational person who weighs evidence & is fair & even handed in my denial of a god.

Unfortunately, as much as I love the sentiment of the graph, I just can't get behind such a spurious claim. How on earth… Continue
